From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Rodenbach Grand Cru
Sharp, firm mouthfeel softend by malty and woody notes that
remain through a long finish. There is an underlying fruity,
yeasty quality that gives this dark ruby colored brew layers of
flavor. The finsh brings a appley richness and bold oak nose
that makes this an outstanding beer. Recommended.
Dominion Black and Tan
Thick mouthfeel opens to a mild chocolate-malt character. An
ever increasing bitterness follows through mid-taste with a
residual sweetness in the finish. An underlying toasted-malt
background is evident throughout as is it's chocolate
sweetness. Solid but not classic.
Having sampled well over 2,200 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations. However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.
Consider this column an informative resource only.
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
This wheat doppelbock presents a
combination of chocolate, spice, and
caramel malt on frist sip. It's malty
sweetness is nicely countered with a
brisk wheat tartness. The alcohol
level (8%) is well hidden as the beer
finishes with a sweet, sugary, malt
smoked character. Recommended.
